Best Edonkey Client

I have tried many clients and I found the best to be Edonkey/Overnet version 1.0.9 and I did have a list of the second best/etc. Unfortunately I haven't used the other versions of the clients in a while and I have lost my list. Recently, I started noticing that my 1.0.9 says "There is a known security vounerability in this version of edonkey. Please upgrade to the most recent version.

Where can I get that with no adwear or spyware and the second best.

Might be obvious, but just making sure, you're asking for a client that connects to OverNet as well as the ED2K network, right? If so, I think there's an eMule mod that might be able to do this, but I don't know which one this is. Perhapse someone else can give better advice then me.

which client do you recomend without adwear and spyware? I want one that connects to Overnet and Edonkey2000.

I'm currently using 0.52 as a backup for the Overnet Side to continue my downloads. I formatted my hd and deleted 1.0.9. I also found some kind of program that disables my antivirus. My hd kept getting full of nothing. I am not letting anyone use the pc anymore because everytime I do, I get mess on it.

maybe this security voulnerability stuff is non sense as for what the client says. What do you all think? 1.0.9 did work great for me.

Just go to http://download.overnet.com/edonkey.exe and download the latest version.

To advoid the adware/spyware, install it with your Internet connection unpluged. The installer has to connect to overnet servers "bundles.overnet.com" and "www.bundles.overnet.com" while installing to download the adware/spyware. No connection means no adware/spyware.

After eDonkey2000 is completely installed close the installer and then plug your Internet connection back up.

You can block the ad banner with your host file.



Thanks. :D

MetaMachine hasn't released any information about the "vulnerability". Although I tend to support them I am growing a bit wary of v1.4.5 although I do use it.
